Each session will feature a classical and jazz performance as well as off the beaten path performances by chamber musicians of all backgrounds.

January 18th’s inaugural session features local classical Flutist Jayde Weide performing Syrinx by Claude Debussy for solo flute, Andy Rayborn’s musical project Papergates which showcases Bass Clarinet aided by electronics, haunting melodies, and sounds reminiscent of Moondog.
After the opening mic, a special showcase of Ceramics, paper moon installation, and experimental Theremin and Clarinet improvisation set will brought to the study sessions by Gina Collison and Lisa Lipton through a Regional Arts and Culture Council Make|Learn|Build grant that funded this collaboration.
The evening will end with jazz trio Fredson The Jeffy with jazz pianist George Colligan, jazz drummer Micah Hummel, and genre bending clarinetist Lisa Lipton. Their most recent album was released in September under the Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble, recorded and mixed by jazz pianist Randy Porter at Heavywood Studios.
MC for the evening and Co-Host is Skip Vonkuske
